Hello my fabulous readers! So long, no post! I just got back from a wonderful vacation to the Finger Lakes in New York. It was the perfect week full of wine tasting and relaxation. Before I went on vacation, I made these chocolate chunk cookies and I just had to share the recipe with you today!
It was pretty much a no-brainer that I had to add a chocolate chip cookie recipe to the blog. They are my favorite dessert after all! I decided to make these cookies a chocolate chunk version after I had picked up these from King Arthur Flour. I have been dying to perfect this recipe and I think I nailed it!
Chocolate chip cookies are taken extremely serious in Joe’s family, so obviously I used them as my taste testers! Every time I make them they get compared to Joe’s great grandma’s recipe. Ever since her passing, nobody has been able to exactly replicate her recipe. His family says that this one is the closest so far.
These cookies use the same base recipe as my M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies, but instead have chocolate chunks and walnuts in them! They are perfect just out of the oven with a glass full of milk (or maybe one of the bottles of wine I bought on vacation…….. or not). Just typing this, I wish I had one in my hand right now.
Each bite of these cookies are soft, chewy, and full of flavor. I made my cookies large by rolling up the dough in 1 1/2 inch balls on the cookie sheet. I used lots of chunks to ensure that there was plenty of chocolate in every bite! This recipe requires NO chilling, so they can be made quickly when you’re in a hurry or if you just want a cookie as fast as possible. Let’s be honest, we all want a cookie as fast as possible!
